West Hatch Animal Centre
OUR ANIMAL CENTRES, WILDLIFE CENTRES, HOSPITALS AND CHARITY SHOPS ARE CLOSED TO THE PUBLIC UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE.
This means that we cannot accept wild or domestic animals from the public, and are looking after existing animals in our care, and new animals brought in via our animal rescue teams.
OUR NATIONAL CRUELTY LINE IS STILL OPERATING: 0300 1234 999.
If you have a badly injured stray or wild animal please call your local vet for advice. Please do not attend a vet practice without calling first.
This is an incredibly difficult time for us across the RSPCA and we appreciate your ongoing support.
Although our centre remains closed to the public, we are now able to rehome and foster animals again and have made some temporary changes to the way we do things. Please visit the RSPCA website for more information. At present we are working on a reduced number of staff so please be patient with us if we are unable to get back to you straight away. Please be aware that we are working our way through contacting all of our current fosterers before we recruit new ones.
Here at the RSPCA West Hatch Animal Centre, most of our animals have been rescued from neglect and bad treatment by their previous owners.
We look after dogs, cats, rabbits, birds, and many other types of small domestic animals - at any one time we could be caring for over 150 animals.We spend weeks, sometimes months, rehabilitating them and preparing them for a new life and a second chance.
In 2018 we rehomed 136 dogs and 194 cats. Our small animal block rehomed 32 rabbits and 162 other companion animals. That is a total of 524 animals in one year! We also microchipped 215 animals, neutered 297, vaccinated 471 and performed 178 operations.
It costs the RSPCA over £2000 a day to run the West Hatch Animal Centre. The RSPCA relies entirely on kind donations from people like you.
The RSPCA West Hatch Animal Centre takes in animals from RSPCA Inspectors only. The demand for spaces for the animals they bring to us is ever increasing and we are therefore unable to accept unwanted pets or stray animals from members of the public. We are able to provide information on centres that can re-home animals for the public on request.
